  • How to use Medela milk collection shells

  • You’ll need to assemble the two parts of the milk collection shells before use, which is easy to do:

  • The soft, flexible silicone membrane is designed to be gentle on skin – place it on to the outer shell, snapping it all the way around.

  • Once assembled, place the milk collection shell inside your bra, with the membrane’s opening centered over your nipple. The handy spout should be facing upwards.

  • It’s a good idea to wear a nursing bra when using milk collection shells. These tend to be a bit roomier than a typical bra, ensuring the shells apply less pressure to your breasts.

  • How to clean Medela milk collection shells

  • It’s important to keep your breastfeeding accessories clean, and this includes breast milk collection shells. Before the first time you use them – and once a day thereafter – sanitise the breast shells like this:

  • Separate the parts and place them in a small pan filled with cold distilled water. If distilled water isn’t available, add a teaspoon of citric acid to tap water to help prevent limescale build-up.

  • Bring the water to the boil, and continue to boil the breast shells in it for five minutes.

  • Drain off the water with care, and let the parts dry on a clean cloth.

  • It’s also important to clean milk collection shells after each use. Separate the parts and wash with a mild cleaning solution. Then rinse thoroughly in cold water, and dry on a clean cloth. Both the outer shell and inner membrane are dishwasher-safe, so you can also use this method of cleaning, or you could use a microwave bag.
